VOX’s coveted Custom Series amplifiers are synonymous with remarkable guitar tone. Beginning with the birth of British rock ‘n’ roll, the distinguished, all-tube sound and signature chime of VOX amplifiers has inspired the most memorable moments in music history. In the years since exploding onto the scene, VOX has remained the choice of the most discerning players, serving as the voice for emerging artists and legends alike. When you have something to say, a VOX Custom Series amp will get you heard.
AC15C1: When Less is More
First introduced in 1958, the AC15 combo has been the amp of choice for countless guitar players throughout the world. Drawing on more than 50 years of amp-building expertise, the AC15C1 Custom Series offers maximum tonal dexterity.
• All-valve 15-watt combo
• Twin channel design provides Normal and Top Boost tone
• Treble & Bass controls
• Gain and Master Volume allow for warm overdrive at any level
• Tremolo & spring Reverb effects
• External and extension speaker output jacks
• Two Celestion speaker options; G12M “Greenback” or Alnico Blue.
An Evolution in Tone
The VOX AC15 Custom Series amp offer two channels: Normal and Top-Boost. Each channel is equipped with its own Volume control, and the Top Boost channel offers highly interactive Treble and Bass tone controls. This powerful channel pairing provides an abundance of tone-crafting control, letting you dial in a classic sound that is all your own.
Both channels rely on the Tone Cut and Volume controls in the Master section. The Tone Cut control operates in the power stage rather than the preamp stage, allowing an additional degree of tone-shaping. The Master Volume control works in conjunction with the individual volumes of each channel to create just the right degree of gain-staging. By balancing the individual and Master volumes, the Custom Series can deliver everything from a clean VOX “chimey” sound to a powerful overdriven tone.
Sound in Motion
You can sweeten the sound of the AC15 Custom Series using the VOX Classic Tremolo effect. Both the speed and the depth are adjustable, allowing you to generate just the sound you want. A warm Spring Reverb is also included, adding spaciousness to the sound. All AC15 Custom amps can use the VOX VFS2A footswitch, allowing you to turn the Reverb and Tremolo effects on and off as you continue to play.
The AC15 Custom Series makes use of 3 x 12AX7 preamp tubes. A pair of EL84 tubes in the power stage drives 15 watts of power through a single 12” Celestion Speaker. You can choose either the AC15C1 with a G12M Greenback speaker or the AC15C1X that uses the Alnico Blue Speaker. All models in the Custom Series offer a switchable 8/16 ohm jack for powering an external speaker cabinet when you need to speak with a little more authority; using this jack will mute the internal speakers. Additionally, a 2nd output jack – the extension speaker jack – allows you to run an extra 16 ohm cabinet along with the internal speakers for a fuller sound.
